I'm now accepting commissions w/models starting at $2.50 a model! PM's are an excellent way to get ahold of me!

Standard Guardsman


A work in progress using white as the armor color


Some Tactical Marines


Some Grey Knights



Apologies if this is the wrong forum. Mods please move if it is. Wasn't sure as it pertains to several different forum types. But since it's got 40k models I just put it here. Thanks again

Now accepting Commissions!

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I'll probably be up and running within the 2-3 weeks. Depends on how many references i can put together by then. I'd like to have at least 3-4 people who can vouch for my work before I start taking orders

Check out my gallery for more of the models I've painted. I'll also be posting pictures of the fire teams I paint for references.

Two bucks apiece is an excellent price - I'm sure you'll have a lot of takers! Just don't take on more work than you can complete in a reasonable period of time, eh?

I don't plan to. I have my job that pays the rent that I work 40 hours a week which means i'll more than likely only be accepting 2 commissions a month, possible only one if it's the commission is a large guard, Nid, or ork army. I plan to have a reasonable turn around time on the commissions which won't be possible if I accept to many

I'll also be keeping records of how I painted what for whom so that if someone wants to add something to an army i've painted for them i can match the paintjobs perfectly.

I am going to pass along a little advice to you that will guarantee success:

In my garage I have set-up a complete shop for fabricating roll cages for off-road vehicles. I have a tubing bender, drill press, tubing notcher, chop saws, etc, etc. My buddy and I wanted to make some extra money so we started doing work for people other then ourselves. We made an agreement to not accept ANY new work until our current project was completed. We then expressed this to our potential customers. Because we were able to focus on one project at a time we were able to complete projects faster and to a higher degree of workmanship. Customers were happy with the speed and happy with the quality of work. By word of mouth, we got more and more requests for we still only take on one project at a time. It might take a little longer to get to a customer, but they are more then willing to wait since they know their project will get our undivided attention and will be quality work.

Your painting is pretty damn good, but don't sacrifice the quality of work and customer service to try and get a ton of customers.

Having seen Hulksmash's work in person I'd say that $2 a figure painted by him would be a great deal!

@Brother Ramses

Thank you for that. I appreciate it. It was actually my intention to take a single army commission at a time. The statement of 2 a month was about what I felt I would be able to complete. One commission followed by another. I don't plan on holding more than one at a time as to do so would cause extra stress for me and the persons waiting for both armies. It wouldn't be fair as it would take me twice as long because I would feel the need to work on both as I would be being paid for both. But one at a time i can do the same number a month with a much faster turn around

Also, leave time for your own stuff. Not a good thing to get burned out and then look at your own stuff that needs to be painted and not wanting to touch it.

I've got 4 fully painted tournament level armies so I'm not to worried about not wanting to touch my stuff I appreciate the concern though Ramses.

I'm a horrible painters and my wife paints everything pink and purple. I've been wanting to get stuff painted, except prices are...well, really rough.

I'd like to be informed as soon as you're open for business. Are you going to be painting only whole armies, or smaller orders as well?

I've already responded to Dashofpepper via PM but in case anyone else is curious I will be accepting smaller commissions assuming it meets a minimum of $20 before shipping and handling (i.e. at least 10 models). I do prefer to work on full armies as it is more difficult to match previous paint jobs. Hope that helps!

Well, I've sent a unit of 20 Stormboyz off to Hulksmash; my wife has painted most of her Ork army but I wanted to see how they come out so that when I get my Dark Eldar army I've got someone to lean on. Hopefully we'll have some pictures in a week or two.

I haven't gotten my stuff just yet so I can't inspect my models critically, but I'll say this much of my experience:

Hulk was easy to work with, we chatted on the phone several times, he has the artistic ability to turn a vague idea into a great theme and color scheme, and if money permits, he'll be painting a lot of my dark eldar army when I get the trades for it worked out.

Hey Everyone!

Just got the pictures from Hulksmash of the 5 man IG team I sent to get painted up and I am EXTREMELY pleased with what I saw. I am very excited to be getting them back. Good detailing, and the scheme is exactly how I pictured it being. I'll post more once I get them back, but I am very happy with the end result.

Thanks!

EDIT: I forgot to mention the excellent communication. He always asked about colors, basing, and even detailing so it was exactly to my standards!
